What is mortgage insurance?

Mortgage insurance allows you to buy your home with less than a 20% down payment.

This insurance is offered by various organizations, including the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), which is a national housing agency in Canada, Sagen™ (formerly known as Genworth) and Canada Guaranty™, which are private organizations.

All three organizations are certified and recognized by National Bank.
